Former alcohol and drug user Jack Osbourne visits the Promise Centre in Kensington, London; the only unit in England that offers the 12-Step Programme of recovery to teenagers.
Many of the teenagers at the residential unit share their personal stories that brought them to the centre. For the majority, the occasional use of ‘soft’ drugs led to a frequent habit and the experimentation of ‘harder’ or Class A drugs. The main benefit of the programme comes from meeting others who have shared experiences of beating addiction, giving people the opportunity to see that there is hope.
Jack and Kelly Osbourne, who have both fought alcohol and drug addiction in the past, talk personally about the dangers of taking drugs and the misery it can bring to a person’s life. Kelly’s advice is that if you play with drugs, you pay.
